Hmm, IIRC, using "-O6" is the same as "-O3" in egcs-1.1.2 (= 2.91.66), so
that's not very useful. It can be a problem with the extreme
optimizations, but it might as well be a problem with "-mpentiumpro".

Anyway, it is not a bug in GTK+, but in the compiler. It is possible that
this version of GTK+ *triggers* the bug in the compiler. Don't use those
extreme optimizations, or try with a new version of the compiler
(gcc-2.95.1 is the latest, see
